I thought it would be a good idea to go through and make a journal entry on how to make an Ahri cosplay. OR pretty much just how I did it
*** This is just a tutorial on her TOP. There will be another tutorial on her tails, hair, and shoes and skirt. ***
What you will need:
*3d model is GREAT. I loved having it, since I used her in game art that is! But keep in mind there are differences in the in game models and in the splash art! I use this one ---->
*About 2 yards of your choice of white and red fabrics. I used silk because I really liked the way they looked- it was a little harder to cut because it frays a little- but I like the way it turned out.
* Red and white thread.
* Sewing machine
* Red zipper
(1) You will start by constructing a pattern out of poster board. Allow yourself a few inches on the sides for cutting and for sewing. (You also have the option of making the chest a bit bigger if you feel like be

Ahri Cosplay - Tails TutorialHi again loves!Ahri Cosplay - Tails Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So sorry it's taken me so long to post on here for the next section on the Ahri cosplay. I have already done a tutorial on her sleeves, skirt and her top. I started her tails first and finished them last because well, they were rather frustrating, and I am in the process of reworking them. Once I completely finish my rework on her tails, I will post another how to!
As always, the pictures will be numbered ;3
What you will need:
*At the very minimum you will need 2 yards of white fake fur. I am lucky enough to have an enormous fabric place called Fabric Depot which has it's own section for fake furs! I got one that was long, straight, soft and beautiful! Fake fur can be pretty spendy, I got mine for 29.99 a yard (1)
*Firm Foam (I cut mine appropriately) (2)
*Stuffed animal stuffing
*Industrial Strength Velcro
*Some fabric or a small belt.
*Some hot glue and a hot glue gun
*Some (preferably) white velcro
First you will decide how large you want your t
Ahri cosplay- Skirt TutorialHi again guys!Ahri cosplay- Skirt Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here is the tutorial for the skirt. I started similalarily to how I did with the top- But first! Let's talk supplies.
You are gonna need:
*White fabric (I used some satin)
*Fabric paint- I use Jacquard brand - Gold an a red. (5)
*Paint brushes of all sizes- primarily smaller and thinner ones.
*White thread of course
----I will correspond the bottom pictures with the points below----
You can start by taking your measurements- using the pattern method from the shirt create a pattern. Make sure to make the pattern about 2 inches larger than you are to allow enough space for sewing/breathe room. It is also important that you make sure to make the top layer of the skirt larger at the bottom so that it sticks out in the nice points like she does in game
I made my skirt in 2 different pieces. The top half and the bottom half.
1) First I will talk about the bottom half of the skirt;
I first created two pieces to sew together in the front and the back (The seems wil
Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves TutorialHello again!Ahri Cosplay - Sleeves Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the tutorial for the sleeves of her dress. It is debatable whether or not her sleeves are attached to her top or not. I personally made them separate because It would be even more constricting than it already is XD. I would have liked to made the top of my sleeves a little bigger and I may redo them- but that's for something else. :3
In my first initial post about Ahri's top I posted a picture of the patterns I made, the stencil on the left is the one I made for the sleeve. I know it looks big, but it should! You want to leave enough room at the top and the bottom of the sleeve so it will flair out.
--- As always, pics coordinating with numbers! <3 ---
What you will need:
* Red fabric (I used satin)
* Red thread
* A strip of your white fabric
* Your fabric paints
* Paint brushes and some water/ a paper towel or two
* Optional; Wire (used to shape the top of the sleeves)
First you will make your pattern, measure the top of your arm and stretch it out so that you

The possibilities of lay out there was endless, and Allison knew this. Her heart fluttered at the thought of the adventures she could have. Ones similar to those that were told by patrons of her bar.
Allison Marie Rosewood, my OC, has the ability to travel the omniverse through the use of an ancient relic she calls The Skeleton Key. At first her travel was limited to the megatropolis known as Parallexus, but as stories of wondrous places were told to her she could no longer contain the urge to go out and explore further into the omniverse.
For this contest, you will be drawing a place in the omnieverse that Allison has gone to. I am really leaving this contest open for people's imaginations to run wild. The location can be anywhere and she can be doing just about anything that would within reason of her doing it. She can be in a world

I would also like to direct your attention to :iconyuurisan-c-chan: who has started writing her own helpful tutorial on Lightning's Valkyrie Armor. Her work is really stunning and I highly recommend the tips and tricks she provides.
And for those of you wanting to cosplay Serah from FFXIII-2, yuurisan's twin :iconYuuri-K-sama: has also written a great tutorial. CHECK THESE OUT. YOU WON'T REGRET IT.
Anyway, yesterday I began work on the front chest piece for Lightning, and let me just say, it was a bit of a learning experience. I knew what I was getting into but I didn't know how to go about some things a certain way. It's kind of that thing... "Hey, I think this will work great this way." But it really doesn't go exactly how you envisioned it. This is one of the ways:

MTT species infoIMPORTANT UPDATE.MTT species info4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. This got out of hand really fast. All of a sudden I have a ton of people making a ton of MTT characters all at once, popping out one right after the other. I really did not want it to turn out this way, these rules were meant to try and cut down on the amount of new MTTs being made, but that didn't work out like I wanted it to at all. Worked quite the opposite. So I'm sorry to say this, but the MTTs are now a closed species until further notice. Only way to get one from now on are adoption contests, which I will be hosting more often. Everyone who has already gotten permission for however many MTTs they asked of me, can still make theirs. Going back on my word like that would be lame. Again, I'm sorry, but I don't want to just wait until the fad blows over. The MTT species will stay closed for a while, but I am not sure how long exactly. Maybe a few months, maybe forever.
And I want to stress this is not because of any one certain person, so anyone

Theme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe. Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
Rules and requirements:
You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form.

10 Anti-NaruSaku reasons by yrpfantasy10.) It's anti-climatic10 Anti-NaruSaku reasons by yrpfantasy5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just because Sakura may lose her feelings for Sasuke does not mean that she'll instantly fall for Naruto. I find it quite odd that Sakura would suddenly love him as soon as Naruto comes back and during Sasuke's dissappearance. Sakura love(d) Sasuke, Sasuke leaves, then she loves Naruto? It does not mean right.
9.) It's cliche
NaruSaku tards always complain about NaruHina and SasuSaku being cliche' when NaruSaku is no better. In fact, NaruSaku is more cliche:
-Guy gets the girl he want(ed)
-Girls hated guy at first, but suddenly loves him.
-Guy is moronic.
-Girl is short-tempered.
-Girl beats up and nags guy.
8.) It's not part of Naruto's intention.
True, Naruto did like Sakura, but it is not his goal to be with her. Naruto's goals include:
-To be loved
-Change Hyuuga Clan's rules.
The only reason why Naruto liked Sakura in the first place is for ack

It seemed like many were interested, so here it is!
What is a "Secret Santa"?
"...a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift." (Wikipedia definition, so I didn't botch it ) However, in this particular event, you will be personally sending your gift to your assigned person, so you're only anonymous up until then.
The only media being used is photomanipulation. All skill levels are welcome. As always, all stock must be legitimate (nothing from Google images, etc.)

Now only one thing.
I CAN DO MAGIC
Ok, I think there are al ot of people who want to know how this water magic was done
I will made Christmas gift for you all and explain it C: Its not that hard as it seems.
When I write Kirana e-mail what she need to take for this shoot, it was something like "You need 1 pound of floor and 10 small balloons. No. 20 are better." So, how it was done? We put water in 2 balloons and Kirana stand still, Ten and Fei pop balloons with needles after mine "1,2,3!!!" and in that second I took photos. Easy and hard at the same time.
I will give few advices. We tried to use stick with needle, but it was too lame. It made only a small hole and water pop out like...well...it wasnt cool at all. So much better do it with hands using some strength. Also its really hard for mode
